iPhone to use third-party Web 2.0 applications


During his keynote address at WWDC, Apple CEO Steve Jobs revealed that the iPhone will support third-party applications based on Web 2.0 standards. Developers will be able to create apps which look and behave like built-in iPhone applications, and can seamlessly access the handset’s services, include making a phone call, email, and Google Maps. “Developers and users alike are going to be very surprised and pleased at how great these applications look and work on iPhone,” said Steve Jobs, Apple’s CEO. “Our innovative approach, using Web 2.0-based standards, lets developers create amazing new applications while keeping the iPhone secure and reliable.” He also stated that the handset will go on sale at 6:00 p.m., June 29.

Wouldn’t apps like Gizmo Project be able to create a web 2.0 app and allow VOIP calls?  I know they already have a website from which you can call.

Oh man. Web apps. Not really what I had in mind for adding custom iPhone apps.

Does it actually mean that you will need a network coverage to use them or will you be able to go off-line and use some of them as recorded in the browser’s memory?

lv bags are by far poorer than iphone; however, it’s so strange that many people want to squander thier banknotes on the superficial products which comparatively requires almost no professional depth(any street passenger is capable of designing them, and most rural bag factories are able manufacture them) but just resorts to trickery to swindle some stupid ones. On the contrary, the greatness and awesomeness of all engineers and program designers of iphone, by far loftier and respectable than lv’s bags, is enough to touch ordinary users. It’s better for all who want to criticize the badness of iphone to scold the superficial, shallow, and rubbish contents of lv bags at first; after all, it will never be iphone’s turn to be criticized compared with other worldly products.

I am looking to create an app for the iPhone. Is there a good sight to teach me the basics, then advance, writing techniques? I haven’t written code in a long time. I am trying to get back into it.
